Barack Obama Receives Presidential Briefings via iPad!

Posted in Apple News, iPad on 02/03/2012 by J. Glenn Künzler


An interesting official White House picture depicts Barack Obama receiving a Presidential Daily Briefing on January 31st. But what’s interesting about the image is how he is receiving the briefing – on the iPad 2!

As CultofMac points out, the official title of the picture calls the device a “tablet computer,” but as most people who have owned and used one will tell you, the iPad is not just a “tablet computer.” Android tablets are tablet computers. The iPad is, well, an iPad – an experience of its own.

It’s already well-known that Obama owns and uses an iPad, but it’s still pretty cool to see that he can even receive an official brief on one too!
